Australian Accounting and Consulting Firm Partners with ROP for Successful
Business Plan Development

Client – Australian
Accounting Firm

The client is an accounting and consulting firm based in Brisbane, Australia, with a commitment to providing affordable tax accounting and bookkeeping services for businesses, individuals, investors, and Non-Profit organizations. Their focus on value models for their clientele and range of targeted accounting solutions have positioned them as an experienced and trusted industry service provider.

Requirements – Demand Forecasting and Business Development Plan

The client wanted to expand the scope of their Business Development Plan and needed to partner with a reputable global research firm. The business development action plan would need to envelop demand forecasting for an event, research on both partners and sponsors, information about obtaining a legal permit to sell alcohol whereby all profits would go to the company, and a revenue and expense estimate to present to potential investors.

The client discovered Research Optimus (ROP) after conducting an online inquiry and interviewing several potential outsourcing partners. After consulting with ROP’s knowledgeable, multilingual, and efficient team, the client contracted ROP services due to the following:

  • Dedicated financial advisory and research team with expertise in risk evaluation and management, and statistical based business analytics.
  • Ability to provide comprehensive and detailed reports that include all required information in an attractive, easy to understand format for display to the client’s potential investors.
  • Adherence to the client’s preferred budget and timeframe which was very brief.

Challenges Faced by the
Analysts at Research Optimus

ROP addressed a few key challenges while working on this research specific Business Plan Development:
